LEBANON -- It was a good day for the locals as Lebanon natives Daniel Harrison and Chris Hall accounted for nine hits in Cumberland's 14-10 victory over 20th-ranked Georgetown in the Mid-South Conference opener Friday at Stockton Field.
The Bulldogs rapped out 22 hits and scored in seven innings as third baseman Harrison (Lebanon High) went 5-for-5 and leftfielder Hall (Friendship Christian) finished 4-for-4 with a walk.
"We've been waiting for a break-out game offensively," said CU Coach Woody Hunt, "we swung the bat very well. But Georgetown battled -- it was a tough day to play with the wind blowing out. A good day to hit, a tough day to pitch."
Cumberland scored eight runs in the first two innings, but Georgetown responded with five runs in the third and two more in the fifth, highlighted by a pair of home runs by Jordan Hinshaw.
The Bulldogs added single runs in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings and scored twice more in the eighth, roughing up four GC hurlers. CU stranded 13 base runners in the game, including leaving the bags full in the second and seventh innings and two runners in the fifth and sixth.
Cumberland lefty Kevin T. Greene (3-0) picked up the win with eight innings of work, allowing seven runs on 10 hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out five and really did a great job except for one inning when he gave up five runs on six hits.
